This is brilliant. I would like to share this story with my students here in Berlin!

Thanks and please feel free to do so. My ancestors came to America from Germany in the 1770s. I travelled there on the Hippie Grand Tour in 1969, was stationed the as a soldier in 73–74 and lived there for seven years in the 80s. Married a German, too. My karma has always been connected to Germany. Curiouser and curiouser.
